Demon WP cannot be used at all in an area where animals will graze. Non-grazing animals should be kept out of the area while the product is being applied, and can return once everything is dry.
Demon WP Insecticide is labeled to be used on lawns, ornamental trees and shrubs and it is labeld to treat ants, but it can leave a white powdery residue behind, and it will only kill the ants that come into direct contact with it. You may wish to use some ant bait in addition, applied around the base of the tree, so that they will consume it and share it with the entire colony.
As long as the product label instructions are followed and the product is only applied to places indicated on the label, the product should not be harmful to humans or pets.
Demon WP will kill Midges that come in contact with it. It cannot be applied as a broadcast, however. Talstar P would be a great product for you. Spraying a product such as Talstar P on window screens, doors, bushes, and plants around your home can act as midge repellant to keep midges away. Citronella candles or oils can act as a midge repellant, but they aren’t as effective when used alone. Talstar P is safe for children and pets after dried.
Demon WP Insecticide is a wettable powder that needs to be mixed with water. You would use 1-2 packets per gallon of water.

Recommendations are based on what you are treating for. Demon WP is a very good general purpose insecticide for pests like spiders, roaches, etc. Keep in mind that it can leave a white residue behind on some surfaces.
Another good option for general pest control would be Cyzmic CS. This is a liquid concentrate that is mixed with water. It will go on clear and dry clear as well. The residual indoors is 90 days and 30 days outdoors.
